Data Assimilation Research Team

Data Assimilation Research Team was launched in October, 2012, in RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science (AICS), conveniently located in the beautiful and historic city of Kobe. RIKEN is known as the flagship research institution in Japan. On April 1, 2018, RIKEN AICS was renamed RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS). R-CCS is operating the world's leading K computer, and also has a strong Research Division. R-CCS takes the lead in advancing the computational science and aims to be an international center of excellence for computational science in collaboration with a wide range of research organizations. R-CCS integrates the computer science and computational science to conduct most advanced research and development of a wide range of applied scientific computation, as well as of high performance computing technologies.

Data assimilation is a cross-disciplinary science to synergize numerical simulations and observational data, using statistical methods and applied mathematics. As computers become more powerful and enable more precise simulations, it will become more important to compare the simulation with actual observations.

Data Assimilation Research Team ("DA team") performs cutting-edge research and development on advanced data assimilation methodsand their wide applications, aiming at integrating computer simulations and observational data in the wisest way. Particularly, the DA team will tackle challenging problems of developing efficient and accurate data assimilation systems for high-dimensional simulations with large amount of data. The specific areas include 1) research on parallel-efficient algorithms for data assimilation with the super-parallel K computer, 2) research on data assimilation methods and applications by taking advantage of the world-leading K computer, and 3) development of most advanced data assimilation software optimized for the K computer.
